Oregon Supreme Court Kills Assault Weapon Ban Initiative Over Deceptive Language

On Wednesday, Oregon's Supreme Court refused to approve Initiative Petition 43, a state ballot proposal for an assault weapon and high-capacity magazine ban, due to the initiative's repeated use of vague and misleading language and outright false claims to describe the proposed law to voters. Furthermore, the court directed Oregon's attorney general to revise the language of the initiative to comply with state laws requiring Oregonians to be accurately informed about the law's key provisions at the ballot box.

However, even if the necessary revisions were made to the gun control initiative's language, supporters of the measure would need to collect 88,184 signatures by July 6th to get it on this year's ballot. Furthermore, the collection of those signatures could not legally start until Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum made the revisions to the ballot language required by the court. Given these legal roadblocks, multiple local news sources were not optimistic about the initiative's chances for success.
